Do Motorcycle Accidents Cause Injuries More Than Car Accidents?

 

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents almost always end up with injuries involved. You are far more likely to be physically hurt if you ride a motorcycle and are in an accident than if you are driving a car, simply because there is more material surrounding you in an automobile. It is also common to be thrown from the bike if you are hit by a car, which is why it is so important to ride defensively. You must assume that the people driving cars do not see you, because a collision between a car and a bike always means the car wins.  Cage drivers are distracted, looking at their phones, careless and drunk many times, and if they hit you then it is usually you that gets hurt.

 

What percentage of motorcycle accidents result in injuries?

 

Unfortunately more than 80% of wrecks that involve motorcycles result in injuries or death for the rider. You read that correctly, if you are in a wreck on a motorcycle, you have an 80% chance of not walking away from the crash under your own power, or maybe not walking away at all. This is why it is so important to wear bike safety accessories and helmets. Everyone has an opinion on helmets, but they save lives in bike crashes. The most common injuries that are sustained by motorcycle riders are:

  1. Concussions
  2. Broken bones
  3. TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries)
  4. Paralysis
  5. Soft tissue damage
  6. Road rash
  7. Burns
  8. Disfigurement

If you have been in a bike wreck in Las Vegas, the first thing you need to do is get to a hospital. Many times internal injuries do not manifest themselves right away, so even if you feel like you were not hurt you need to be checked out by a doctor. Take pictures of everything and make sure that you take pictures of your injuries as well. If there are any witnesses, record them on your phone saying what they saw and telling you how to get in touch with them later. Call the Las Vegas motorcycle accident injury lawyers at TVL asap.
